She's A Lassie From Lancashire - Lyric

From a dear little Lancashire town
A boy had sail'd, away.
Across the briny spray.
To toil in U. S. A.
When American girls gather'd round
And sought his company.
He'd say: "There's only one girl for me."

She's a lassie from Lancashire,
Just a lassie from Lancashire,
She's the lassie that I love dear,
Oh! so dear.
Though she dresses in clogs and shawl,
She's the prettiest of them all.
None could be fairer or rarer than Sarah,
My lass from Lancashire.

Night and day of his lassie he'd dream,
And under love's sweet spell.
He'd hear the factory bell.
The sound he knew so well.
Home from work they would walk once again,
And thought in reverie.
He'd say: "There's only one girl for me."

She's a lassie from Lancashire,
Just a lassie from Lancashire,
She's the lassie that I love dear,
Oh! so dear.
Though she dresses in clogs and shawl,
She's the prettiest of them all.
None could be fairer or rarer than Sarah,
My lass from Lancashire.

Day by day he kept plodding away,
And to his task he stuck.
Till by a stroke of luck.
A paying vein he struck.
As he wrote her to tell her that he
Would shortly cross the sea.
He'd say: "There's only one girl for me."

She's a lassie from Lancashire,
Just a lassie from Lancashire,
She's the lassie that I love dear,
Oh! so dear.
Though she dresses in clogs and shawl,
She's the prettiest of them all.
None could be fairer or rarer than Sarah,
My lass from Lancashire.
